Oya is a warrior with great skill in the use of weapons. She is credited with power over the market, the cemetery gate and the square. She, therefore, is a representative of commerce, financial movement, and life itself. However, her spiritual function is what makes this Orisha more mystical and interesting.

She is in charge of guiding human beings during life and after their death, to find the perfect harmony between vital energy and the balance that allows them to transcend after physical death. That is why, offering prayers to this Deity, both petitions and praises, is of great help to human beings.

  • When we want to advance in our spiritual evolution.
  • To achieve an optimal understanding of the lessons received from earthly experiences.
  • To win wars, conflicts, disputes of any nature, even of a spiritual nature.
  • To avoid being harmed by our enemies.
  • To obtain economic development, prosperity in our businesses or work projects.
